Very impressive stuff. Thanks for posting this.
As a wearer of (open-fit, non-custom) high-end, micro-Behind-The-Ear, Receiver-In-Canal hearing aids (aka micro-BTE RIC), it would be great to marry the amazing audio quality of IEMs, the best of hearing aids (durability, battery duration, very fine-tuned programming (gain and frequency)), and the convenience of a conductive microphone for phone calls.
These technologies exist for 2 out of the 3 but not all three yet.
I can't imagine such a device is all that far off given the technology that exists today. Alas, the creators of the individual technologies don't generally overlap, but having such a device would be awesome for those of us who have hearing loss, really enjoy good music and need to talk on the phone.
And folks such as Kathy Peck will be very busy.
